webOS gets updated
Palm has updated webOS from 1.0.0 to 1.0.2, a minor update but a promising sign nonetheless.  Devices usually receive few, infrequent software updates but the Pre has yet to launch and is already receiving maintenance releases.  This one no doubt carries under-the-hood improvements, but one complaint about the OS has already been addressed with the addition of an alarm clock.  Palm has touted that updates would be both free and available wirelessly, so hopefully they are serious about patching holes quickly and delivering the best mobile OS on the market.

The Pre is a good phone and all, but I don't really see it as impressive that Palm is already making updates even before the phone is released. I see that as going back to fix small stuff that was planned to be in the phone at the beginning but there wasn't enough time to put those small improvements in because they were working on bigger problems/projects like the multitasking function.

hello blackberry storm.... at least they caught it before release. i applaud their efforts and motivation to resolving things quickly unlike the storm that took 6 months.

Very true cant wait to see what these storm addicts have to say...before they add they should know that they will loose this debate cause there has been so many updates to the storm i have lost count. Hopefully the storm 2 wont have as many problems cause the first one was a disgrace.

this is totally acceptable and expected. the whole country has been waiting extremly unpatiently for this phone so u knew it was going to come out with a few bugs and little fixes. im sure there will be many updates to come and with each one the phone will just get more amazing.i play with it everyday and i still cant get over how sweet it is and how smooth everything flows. it almost brings a tear to my eye lol
